My Interior Rattles:noob:

Are there any common areas that I can check to find the rattle in my interior. I think its coming from the passenger door/ glove box area but I feel like I have checked everything. When its cold it doesnt do it as bad. Once the car warms up its pretty annoying.


Any tips?


Also my sunroof rattles too, is this something I can take it to the dealership under warranty?

dynamat is the only proper way to stop the rattling other wise deal with it. The cobalt is cheap for a reason

I fully understand the GM cheap interior but this is a rattle that can be fixed. It sounds like something is loose but I cant find out what it is.

My car has 33k miles on it. 2006 LT. M5


anyone else?

You can always find the no-name dynamat on Ebay. Good prices, same kind of stuff also.

Have you checked the trim? I believe that's a common culprit.

Can you explain how to tell if a no-name is just as good as the original?

I have the no name installed in my doors and half of the trunk on the Cobalt. Also have a mix in my truck. If there was no printing on the peel off backing there would be NO difference between Daynamat and the generic stuff.

It is like all the other name brand vs generic products on the market. Only difference is the packaging. Coca Cola vs Store brand--only difference is the containers. I worked at a Coke bottling plant annd discovered that. Have seen other examples on the show "How's it's Made".

For the door rattles, I found that one of the larger culprits is the metal clips that the window switch bezels screw into. Same with some of the cable ties GM has for the door.
